This is a fast and easy dessert! Everyone thinks I spent all day putting it together. Little do they know how easy it is and of course I will never tell... ;) I love doing this with fresh apples from the orchards. You can use any kind of fruit you want and can mix them to get great tasting flavors. My momma taught me how to cook Southern style, being from the hills of Kentucky. I love cooking and even more, love watching my family eat it all up. I hope y'all enjoy this one!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a great, basic fruit crisp recipe. In the Test Kitchen, we used a 16 oz bag of frozen berries and it turned out delicious. The topping is buttery. There's a slight cinnamon flavor but that's not overpowering. It will work with any type of fruit combination you decide to use. A great recipe for a beginning baker. It's perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream but just as yummy on its own.
